Description:

Ever since she moved to Sweet Briar, South Carolina, Yankee librarian Tori Sinclair has been the talk of the tiny town. But she's been so busy at work, winning over the sewing circle, and trying to forget her cheating ex that she hasn't even had time to baste together a pillow, let alone mind local gossip. Then she finds the hometown sweetheart dead at her back door...

Everyone believes the police investigator, who's just fixin' to link Tori to the murder in a love triangle gone bad. To clear her name, Tori will have to rely on her new sewing sisters and stitch together the truth- or be darned.

My Thoughts:

I started this series with Let It Sew and fell in love with the residents of Sweet Briar.  In this book Yankee Tori Sinclair is the new librarian in Sweet Briar and the tongues are wagging about the Yankee girl.  Not long into this book a young girl winds up dead behind the library.  All fingers are pointing in Tori's direction.  

In this book we also meet Milo Wentworth who is a third grade teacher who meets Tori while she is working at the library and the sparks are flying.  Milo believes in Tori and her innocence  as do a few other residents of Sweet Briar.  Tori is still dealing with Dixie Dunn who use to be the librarian and is very bitter about loosing her job to the young Yankee gal.  In the end Dixie is offered a spot in the library as a volunteer.  Which makes Dixie Dunn very happy.

Tori decides during this book to find out who killed the young girl. 

I loved this story, it was a great adventure to go on with some great characters.  I loved taking a trip to Sweet Briar and learning how the sewing circle got together and how the included Tori even though she is an outsider, and watching the relationship between Tori and Lulu was so cute.  This book was a great ride to take on a quiet day!
